, there is in such thing as a gaffe. where you are on the right or the left, i urge you to read and follow john because he has a way of stepping back. i'm not blowing out smoke. john, there is a double standard. i have always said it. i don't care if you are on the right or left. you have to wonder about a comment like that going by. if a republican had said it, it would have gotten a bit more scrutiny. >>guest: well, the president of the united states, in the aftermath of one of his arches being murdered and potentially dragged through the streets of benghazi, referring to the aftermath of difficulties in the wake of the arab spring as "bumps in the road" is guilty of a gross insensitivity to the meaning of this event. had it been spoken, say, by george w. bush in 2004, the question you have to ask color self, with "sixty minutes", they knew about it, would that is led to the newscast or led to the today show and the morning and be on the front page? six front pages, main political stories on monday, not one of them dealt with the "60 minutes" interview. my view is we are at a point where gaffes which us
. >> remember the scream? howard dean led john kerry in early polls, but then after a loss he tried to rally the troops. >> we're going to california, and texas, and new york! >> the room was noisy. and people in the room said, this sounded like a normal rally. >> and then we're going to washington, d.c. to take back the white house! yay! >> but because dean's microphone picked up only dean's voice, the tv broadcast made him sound crazy. >> yay! >> that unfairly may have killed his campaign. even images can matter more than issues. this video is said to have hurt john kerry. this is said to have helped bill clinton. bill clinton. in the 1980 republican primary george bush had moment against ronald reagan, until in the debate in new hampshire, there was a moment where reagan looked strong. >> i am paying for this microphone. >> that moment helped change the campaign. >> some o some of them you can . >> read my lips. no new taxes. >> the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull, lipstick. >> other ones, you got to depend on your candidate seizing a moment you didn't expect to happen. >>
. >> such a good job. >> gng to be an interesting couple of weeks. all right, thanks, john. appreciate it. president obama, the real president obama, is going to be campaigning in d.c. today. and a new memo that's been obtained by cnn shows that the romney campaign is apparently trying to lower expectations for the presidential debate. the first debate, of course is on wednesday. and in that memo romney adviser beth myers tells campaign surrogates there are several reasons that she believes the president will be likely to win the first debate, including this reason. here's a quote. this will be the eighth one-on-one presidential debate of his political career. for mitt romney, it will be his first. let's get right to congressman tim murphy, republican from pennsylvania. he's a romney campaign surrogate. nice to see you, sir. thank you for talking with us, appreciate it. >> good morning. good to be with you. >> thank you. i'm always very concerned on both sides in the campaign when they start saying really nice things about each other. everybody's been complimenting the other person's abil
you not vote for, john cornyn. if the republicans gain control of the senate -- you have said twice, on two occasions, he would not guarantee you would support john cornyn. that is because your money comes from jim demint. if you are interested texas, how could do not support our senior senator majority leader in the abandoned the majority party if the republican party? you'll not commit to him. >> mr. cruz? >> if mr. sadler suggests that as a criteria voters should use, who will stand more closely with john cornyn, that is not a complicated question. john is enthusiastically supporting me with in this campaign. he is campaigning on the road with me. >> the question is whether you would support him. >> we will try one more time. >> would you vote for john cornyn as majority leader of the set? >> he is not running for majority leader. >> would you vote for him? >> i know you are believing you are cross-examining a witness to to just answer my question. yes or no. >> i know you are leaving -- yes or no. >> let me know when you are done. >> give me a response, what ever it is, and then
and wavering conviction. >> let's get more on what's going on with our chief national correspondent john king and chief political analyst gloria borger. his aides keep saying he, but romney will never apologize for america. the accusation being that president obama has repeatedly supposedly apologized for america. >> you've heard this from lots of republicans and over the last year so that the president apologizes for america, that he doesn't believe in american exceptionalism. it's no surprise to me, wolf, that we're hearing this now. look, there's a crisis in the middle east. the only poll numbers in fact in which the president is going down are in foreign policy by sort of a handful of points. so this is a moment for mitt romney to take advantage of that. because in every other poll number, the president seems to be heading in the other direction, ie going up. so he's trying to take advantage of that and to tell people, you know, things aren't going so well in the middle east. this is a president who hasn't been as strong as he says he's been. and wants to get some kind of advantage and so
to reform the internal revenue service. i've worked with george bush and john mccain to normalize relations with vietnam. it was a wonderful bipartisan accomplishment that i am proud of. it is not just identifying republicans. the rules have to change, and i promise you, i believe i can persuade americans to amend the constitution, to allow the congress to ban both outside money and limit the amount of money in campaigns because it is corrupting our political decision-making. we need to change the rules of the filibuster and reduce the number of committees, to reform the congressional pension. there are many changes that need to occur, not just identifying somebody that i can work with, but who am i going to fight. i will be fighting with mitch mcconnell and harry reid on a regular basis. >> thank you. you have 30 seconds for a bottle. -- rebuttal. >> throughout my adult life i have been fortunate to serve on a number of boards, commissions. i was a school board member over 20 years. you learn to work with people. on a school board you work with educators and people with the community. i ha
place wednesday night. president obama is using john kerry as his practice partner. the massachusetts senator is portraiting the former massachusetts governor who is mitt romney, and romney is using ron portman as his obama. paul steinhauser has more on their practice sessions. >> reporter: good morning, gary. you know, it's pretty obvious. one will definitely dominate this week in the race for the white hoe. >> i'm looking forward to the debates. >> reporter: and the first of the three showdowns comes wednesday night when president obama and republican nominee mitt romney face off in denver. both candidates have a lot on the line, especially the gop challenger, who a few days ago gave some insight into his debate preps. >> it's great to have senator rob portman. you know, he debates me from time to time. he is playing barack obama in these mock debates we have. i don't like him very much anymore, all right? he keeps on beating me up and i keep on going away shaking my head. >> reporter: romney flies to colorado monday to hold a rally that night before hunkering down for final prepara
that will help decide the 2012 presidential election. our chief national correspondent john king is in iowa right now where in person absentee voting actually started today. it's pretty early, but they're voting not only in iowa but in other parts of the country as well, john. >> reporter: wolf, 35 states plus the district of columbia allow some form of in person early voting. as you noted, the iowa voting kicked off today. we're here in iowa city. we saw a pretty healthy line. mostly students, mostly obama supporters . mostly obama supporters on day one. now, republicans say that's overblown. if you've made up your mind to vote even before the debates, you are going to be for one candidate or the other no matter what and you are going to vote. so if you're voting early, voting late, it doesn't matter. but one of the places obama thinks it helps is they had a big swell in the youth vote last time. they had the support in the bells, but, wolf, frankly they down this time. sometimes college students get a bitdistracted. one of the things, the president of the university of iowa democrats, her job i
they wanted to take votes away from john kerry. they got banned by wal-mart for partisan registration efforts. how right-wing do you have to be to get banned by wal-mart? the most important part of all of that is taking democratic demonstrations and ripping them up as they have in the past or as they were in this case in florida changing the addresses so when somebody goes to vote they say i'm sorry you can't vote, you don't live here. even a republican from utah during an investigation of this earlier, said, wow, we didn't do anything like this, he said quote . . . and that's chris cannon republican of utah. did he ever get prosecuted for any of this? no, because after they do the voter fraud, bush won. and the bush administration decided they won't pursue charges. really? how surprising. so mitt romney goes to the same bag of trips. and they have also paid $20,000. they said we use this vendor for signature-gathering services, but have not used them since 2011. i love that quote. because it makes it seem like we haven't used these guys all the way from . . . last year. a
's within one game of the rangers in the west with two to go. >>> up next, the "new york times" john harwood joins us in studio for a look at the must-read opinion pages. keep it on "morning joe."

on the law until the election is over. our crime and justice correspondent joe johns has been following this one for us. so, joe, what happens? walk me through. come november 6th, if a voter doesn't have a photo i.d., then what? >> well, this is just pennsylvania, first of all, brooke. if you show up without an i.d., you will still be able to vote one way or the other. the question is about provisional ballots and whether those provisional ballots, if they're filled out, end up being counted in the state of pennsylvania. so a little bit complicated. but this is being seen as a victory for opponents of the law in pennsylvania, but only for this election. what the judge, judge robert simpson in pennsylvania said, is that for this election only he's blocking the voter i.d. law in pennsylvania, the reason he's doing that is because there is not enough time between now and november to get protections in place to assure that people won't lose their ability to vote. so the state's cutoff from implementing or enforcing the controversial parts of the i.d. law through november 6th, the general el
in recent presidential elections. just ask john mccain who made his own last-ditch effort. >> there's just one day left until we take america in a new direction. we need to win in pennsylvania tomorrow. with your help we will win. >> reporter: now, it's unclear what kind of resources romney would put into pennsylvania when asked whether the campaign would buy any ads here, romney aide said that is for the romney campaign to know and for the obama campaign to worry about. but getting back to that phone call, wolf, between romney and prime minister netanyahu, mitt romney just briefed reporters on his campaign plane just about half an hour ago about that conversation. he said netanyahu did talk about that red line on where he would try to draw a line on iran's nuclear weapons program. and romney said he offered his own comments on the issue but wouldn't go into any greater detail than that. and also it's also interesting to note, wolf, romney was asked on the plane about any current assessments on how the president and how the white house is handling the diplomatic attacks in libya, the inves
or for this country has seen since lincoln. >> you're with the president. >> the frightened president, john. like little girl scared. i mean, mitt romney, talk about brilliant. two harvard degrees. the guy has never even lost an argument. >> he's no slouch. i mean, he's the president. >> smoke and mirrors. right now they're drilling him on basic grammar skills. >> romney's people just hope he remains upright. he's a big napper, john. big napper. mitt romney, 90 minutes awake and upright means big win for the camp. >> so jonathan, pugh had an interesting poll showing that president obama is expected to win the debate by a51% and mitt romney by 29%. it seems like president obama is more highly anticipated as the winner of the debate. do these sort of expectations setting games actually work for voters? >> i don't think they matter too much for the voters. it's a lot of fun for us to talk about. you know, as the comedy that you were just playing before suggested, if either one of these guys gets a complete sentence out, it should be a surprise to all of us. look, i think that it -- it matters a litt
find this interesting too. you have a republican governor there, john kasich, you have been working you hear the words drip out of his mouth every day. bring your business to ohio and bring it book up again. to a degree he has been successful. he says none of it is from washington. he makes the case it is his own tax policy and balanced budget bringing jobs back to ohio. the man be it romney or ohio, who can convince to bring back jobs he will within the job. >> not whether or not ohio is doing this much better, it is argument between romney or obama, who can do a better job of the country totally back the economy is growing anemicly, a couple points maybe. we should be growing at four or 5%. we should be exploding and we are not. >> brings you the whole point of 7.2%. okay, it is better than it was but is it good enough. why ohio? why does it always seem like the focus comes back to the buckeye state. this is a state of 12 million people. it is a cross-section of the american spectrum in everywhere. you have big cities, you have large empty spaces. rural, farmland. you have huge minori
of the answers and suddenly the secretary of state is coming around. >> steve: a lot of good questions for john mccane who will with us and then rudy guiliani. we have a big show. put down the clicker, rail. >> gretchen: imagine seeing a man carrying a grenade launcher in the middle of a street. 39 year old michaelatureley dress said up a 16 year old nefew because he wanted to test police response time. cops arrested the phoenix man two months after it was posted on youtube. >> steve: a major defense contractor slashing jobbings. there are looming defense cuts to be blamed for the lay offs. it will slash 500 million in the defense unless congress steps in. it s all about the sequester. >> brian: incredible. he's no master of disguy. an illegal immigrant was trying to hide in a seat to cross the border from morroro to spain. police touched the seat and felt a human. he was ticklish. all three were taken boo custody. >> gretchen: these heels are made for walking. looking for relief for women walking around heelings. a massachusetts woman comes with convert. they start out short and get taller it
and had someone been disappointed with some the effects of that. then we had john mccain who really never came out and endorsed the faith community at all. and then we had a president elected and all of us were excited. i was excited with the hope and change message. hoping some good things happen. i vote for democrats. i vote for republicans. i was excited about that. after four years, looking at issues like same sex marriage, all of the life issues which the president does not stand for, and you see religious liberty being attacked as never before in this country. the faith-based community now understands what the alternative is is. and we understand that mitt romney, while some have said well, he is a mormon he is not an evangelical may not be the candidate of our religious choice, i can say with a surety that he aligns with family values, with the same sex marriage values, with the life values much more with the evangelical community than this president does. >> dr. mark smith, you are the president of ohio christian university. thanks so much for coming in and giving us your perspect
will be asking questions tonight. they are john mashek of the boston globe, ann compton of abc news, and sander vanocur, a freelance journalist. we will follow a format agreed to by representatives of the clinton and bush campaigns. that agreement contains no restrictions on the content or subject matter of the questions. each candidate will have up to 2 minutes for a closing statement. the order of those, as well as the questioning, was determined by a drawing. the first question goes to mr. perot. he will have 2 minutes to answer, to be followed by rebuttals of one minute each from governor clinton and then president bush. gentlemen, good evening. the first topic tonight is what separates each of you from the other. mr. perot, what do you believe tonight is the single most important separating issue of this campaign? >> i think the principal that separates me is that 5 and a half million people came together on their own and put me on the ballot. i was not put on the ballot by either of the 2 parties; i was not put on the ballot by any pac money, by any foreign lobbyist money, by any special
john boehner, too. he's got a propensity to speak his mind. if this thing's in a bad place in a couple weeks, i think you'll see boehner and other republican leaders. >> john boehner's going to have to protect his speakership. you're losing ten points in john boehner's home state, john boehner's going to be concerned, for good reason. and what about mitch? mitch wants to be majority leader. and he has a chance. so yeah. mika. by the way, wasn't it great seeing bill clinton again yesterday? >> it was a very nice interview. i thought you both were very well behaved. you really like each other. it's unbelievable sometimes when they get together. it was good. he was good. don't you think? >> i thought it was great. >> i like the clinton global ni initiative a lot, what they do. >> great stuff. >> it was fun. great to be over there. tony blair was fantastic. guess who we have coming up. >> who's that? >> former british prime minister gordon brown. >> no way. >> it continues. and get this, sheila bair comes to the table. her new become on the financial crisis has some stinging words for trea
and detached from his job. >> the president is lazy and detached? did john really say that? the republican committee in virginia has been ordered by the state gop to take down offensive photos of president obama photoshopped to make him look like a witch doctor and a cave man and this one showing the president begging the country, come on, baby, give me one more chance. as we went on air tonight, most of those photographs are still on that republican committee's web page. joining me now is joe madison, nationally syndicated radio host of "morning's with madison" and ana marie cox, reporter for the guardian. thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me, reverend. >> thank you. >> newt gingrich, joe, says president obama is a false president. what's behind that attack? >> well, i don't know. i asked -- you know, ask the folks in the middle east, you know. ask the navy s.e.a.l.s who helped to get the most wanted terrori terrorists. it's like the three stooges. john, newt, and donald trump. really, like the three stooges on steroids and this is, again, cold. when you hear lazy, that's the ki
things. >> sean: very much so. >> to fix this. i mean, you look through the book, and it was john boehner the speaker who came to the president and said we need to do tax reform, entitlement reform. those are hard. they take a long time. >> sean: we need it. >> it's just got to be done. >> sean: i accept means testing. i don't like it, but i accept it. i accept they'll raise the eligibility age. these are basic things. mitt romney to his credit said that on "60 minutes" this weekend. here's a question for you as it relates to media. 40 days out of an election -- i argue we didn't vet obama in 2008. i was widely quoted as saying the president is laughing his ass off in this country, because if he says there's a donut in the sky they'll regurgitate it. we haven't asked the president, you promised you would cut the deficit in your first term, you didn't do it. $6 trillion in debt. you predicted $8 million more jobs if we passed your stimulus. fewer americans are working. these are fundamental questions, bob. >> we know those numbers. the real question is what is the plan to get us out of thi
beat john mccain by just one point. 49 to 48. but among white men in 2008, he lost by 16 points to john mccain. among white males so far in 2012 romney leads -- you heard some of the leads among other groups but among white males romney over obama 60% to 34%. a 26-point lead among white males. i don't get it. i guess the question is what's wrong with white males. other question is can white males alone save mitt romney? i don't think so. i would love your take on this. help us figure it out. 1-800-steph-12. look what is it about white men? is it they're afraid of losing their job? they're afraid of losing their homes? they're afraid of not getting ahead in the world? they're afraid they won't be able to take care of their families. they're afraid of a black man? what is it? is it racism? is it that they just can't stand the fact that there is a black man in the oval office and you know, they're a white guy and this is a white country and our forefathers were white and what's going on here? we're losing
, especially at iowa. seeing the way that john edwards interacted, there were problems between the two of them and it was very revealing about his personality. it tells a lot about this person. >> i don't have much more data on those experiences. [indiscernible] i think ann romney was quoted the other day about the criticism that her husband is getting. i got a lot of the males -- emails on our blog varying from good for her to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. myan't imagine watching husband go through that. m
the supreme court. some construction taking place. next is john from indiana. the republican line, good morning. caller: if you look at the gallup polls, you can pretty much see that democrats are losing a lot. their registration between 2004 and until now. you look at the republicans and what they are not able to get across is the fact we have a big financial cliff that we are going to go over. nobody is worrying about that. i think third parties are going to gain a whole bunch by the fact that when our nation does go over the cliff financially or we have a lot more problems, people are going to leave the party. they are going to become more and more involved in what is happening in our nation. it has not been so much in the past. they just upset the elections for some of the candidates. i just think they will be more relevant in the future. as the tea party is not able to help out with the republicans, i think he will see a lot of people in the grass roots level leave the two parties and go to the third party. host: thank you for the call. jill stein just received a hundred $60,000 fr
: not really. host: john is on the independent line from maine. caller: yes, i will be watching. i'm a student of human nature, that's all. politicians will always be politicians. i'm not a fanatic on either side. i am just watching to -- their promises don't mean nothing. if they are not backed up with the congress and the senate, they don't mean anything. but it's nice to watch to see a what they will promise, if anything. i am from an old school of politics. i was brought up in new york at the tail end of tammany hall. they were not exactly straight -- anyway. i will watch out of curiosity to see how they present themselves more than anything else. i don't have a particular party. paul joins us on the republican line from west virginia. caller: when i am concerned about is the moderator. during the republican debates, fox news did one of the debates and that was -- they asked the more important questions and it was probably the best debate there was. but now we have four left-wing liberal moderator's and i am sure they will skew the debate. they will ask the questions in such a way that it
by which they want it back and signed by john kerry and barbara boxer and others, by november 13, which won't escape your notice. that is after the presidential election. guys, thank you. >> thank you, megyn. megyn: fox news has confirmed some concerning details about this incident, which has not generated a lot of investigation from the rest of the media. just ahead, former chief of staff under president bush, andy card weighs in how it would've been different if his former boss, george w. bush, was still in the white house. and new concerns about taxpayer dollars on what some call a second cylinder. wait until you hear about what happens when fox asked to speak with the ceo. also, locked up on a probation violation. an interesting ruling in this man's case. the man said to be behind the 15 minute internet video being blamed in part for rights overseas. the real question over the first amendment applies to those that we dislike as well as those we like megyn: the probation violation against the man allegedly behind the anti-muslim film the lead to some of the protest that we have seen in
bush eating corn with the folks. john kerry out hunting looking a little crazy but he's trying to get that working class vote. >> as i said, nascar, don't underestimate. it's 40% women and 20% minorities. >> s.e., to your point about conservation. i ran in a rural district in virginia, and the land and water very much a part of the culture there. it's a conservative district. we found exactly what you're talking about. a sort of progressive message on environmentalism was very -- it was very well received in the district and even the republican member of congress who is down the line conservative on every other issue has had to temper and be a little more mode rate on environmental issues. >> they're misunderstood voters. there are opportunities on both sides to get them. >> we cleared it up a little bit here. up next from hunters and nascar fans from bureaucrats in business suits. both are there making their pitch, but who will hit the sweet spot? the chair joins us live from richmond straight ahead. with the spark cash card from capital one, olaf's pizza palace gets the most rewards
while obama is working with senator john kerry. latest polls covered with that 47% remark hurting romney. in the battleground state of pennsylvania today. >> -- make sure america leads in our homes, in our economy and in our military. i need something from you. that's my commitment to you. i need you to go out and find somebody who voted for barack obama and get him to vote for me. >> he's down but not out. can he turn it around with an october surprise? let's welcome stephanie cutter. it's going reasonably well for you guys. it's been a good couple weeks, really since the conventions. you've got a bit of momentum but i guess you're not taking this too complacently. >> no, absolutely not, piers. you know, debates can be a pivotal moment in campaigns. i remember eight years ago when john kerry was getting ready to debate george bush, we were eight points down. coming out of that first debate we were tied with george bush. so there is an opportunity for mitt romney if he takes advantage of it next wednesday night, to turn the momentum around. he not only has to win this debate but has to c
